A 3-year expedition yields a treasure trove of data on microorganisms and small animals in the world's oceans A bewildering swirl of tiny creatures dominates life in the oceans. More numerous than the stars in the universe, these organisms serve as the foundation of all marine food webs, recycling major elements and producing and consuming about half the organic matter generated on Earth each year (1). In this issue, five research articles from the Tara Oceans expedition (2–6) provide a vivid… Expand
